Note: This report was funded and/or written by our predecessor organisation Alcohol Concern Cymru.


From 2014 to 2017, Alcohol Concern supported a three-year community alcohol project, funded by the Big Lottery, in the twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick on the north Pembrokeshire coast. What made Communities Together different was that it was an alcohol project that wasn’t really about alcohol itself. It was about all the things in our lives that are somehow intertwined with alcohol: our pleasures, aspirations and frustrations; relationships, worries and stresses; all the ways we see ourselves in the world; and all our explanations and excuses for drinking.

This evaluation of the longer-term impact of the Alcohol Concern Cymru, Communities Together, Fishguard and Goodwick Project, aims to understand its legacy, 12 months after it ended, in terms of attitudes to alcohol, drinking behaviours and broader community development.
